Data Dilemmas #2: Sensing the City

Featured image

This week the City of Amsterdam announced that for the upcoming year, Google will measure the air quality in the city.
In the last couple of years, there were plenty of inspiring local initiatives measuring and sensing issues, such as air quality, water quality and amounts of people.
What were the results of these experiments and projects?

On the 6th of June, several initiatives will present themselves, share the data they collected and tell you about the challenges they encountered.
Did these examples have an influence on governmental policy?
